DOI: 10.33917/mic-1.96.2021.72-80

The article considers the reflection of the national mineral wealth in the system of national accounts, shows the availability of reserves of some types of mineral raw materials taken into account in the current assessment system. The main problems are identified and proposals are made for the methodological link between the indicators for assessing mineral resource wealth of the subsoil with the system of national accounts and the assessment of the country’s GDP. An example of evaluating the value of multicomponent apatite-nepheline ore is given. Measures are proposed to link the national mineral wealth with an assessment of the country’s GDP in the national accounts, increasing the level of rational use of mineral resources, comprehensive utilization of multicomponent ores.
